Derek Chauvin was found guilty on all counts of murder and manslaughter on Tuesday afternoon in the death of George Floyd last year.
The former Minneapolis police officer was found guilty of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. …
When the verdict was announced by the Judge Peter A. Cahill, Chauvin looked on blankly from his chair. Each murder charge for a person with no criminal history carries a presumptive prison sentence of 12.5 years, according to Minnesota sentencing guidelines. The manslaughter charge for someone without a criminal record carries a presumptive prison sentence of four years. …
Less than an hour after jurors found Chauvin guilty on all charges, prosecutors thanked the jury for making what they called the "right and decent" choice to convict the former Minneapolis police officer in the murder of Floyd. …
"I want to thank the jury for their service, for doing what was right and decent and correct and speaking truth and finding the right verdict in this case," Schleicher said. [Washington Post]
Barring a miracle in the appeals process, Chauvin will spend decades if not the rest of his life in prison. It's unfair and unjust, the greatest travesty of the criminal courts since O.J. Simpson went free two and a half decades ago.
Mob rule has taken over in America, which means that law and order is dead, and the Constitutional right to due process has been shredded beyond recognition. It’s not so much that the left-wing mob knows that it can tamper with judges and juries with impunity. Rather, the mob is incited to tamper with juries and judges by the press arm of the Global American Empire, with the full weight and backing of the ruling class governing establishment of the Global American Empire.
If there is any bright spot to what happened today, it is this: Americans should be completely purged of the illusion that a fair and just system still exists that will protect them from the predations of the Globalist American Empire. There is no fair system of "law and order" in America. There is only the arbitrary application of power for political purposes.
Derek Chauvin was a humble police officer trying to protect his community from the drug addicts and dangerous predators who grow more common by the day. He responded to a call from a convenience store over a counterfeit bill, and ended up trying to restrain George Floyd, a man both high on drugs and much larger than him. Chauvin used his police training to restrain Floyd while a hostile crowd surrounded him.
No proof was ever offered that Chauvin's knee killed George Floyd, because no such proof could ever be offered. The very notion was ridiculous. Floyd died from a lifetime of health-destroying decisions coupled with the lethal amount of drugs in his system. If Floyd hadn't died on camera, nothing would have happened. Instead, for political expediency, Chauvin was made into a human sacrifice. He was disowned by the state he served and the public he protected.
Chauvin was never going to receive a fair trial.
Trial judge Peter Cahill refused to sequester the jury pool. Every juror was free to see Minneapolis hit by its third wave of riots after the accidental shooting of Daunte Wright in Brooklyn Center (in fact, one of the jurors lives in Brooklyn Center). Every juror could hear Rep. Maxine Waters demand a more "confrontational" approach from demonstrators if they gave the wrong verdict. Every juror could read The New York Times article profiling them, sending the unsubtle message that if they didn't convict, they'd be the next targets of the mob.
Against every principle of justice and legal fairness, Derek Chauvin was successfully tarred as a murderer. Now he will likely suffer a murderer's fate.
Minnesota's criminal justice system spent millions to ensure Derek Chauvin was crushed, bringing in 11 ringer private attorneys to augment the state's attorney. That same system sat pat while mobs destroyed downtown Minneapolis last summer and burned down a police station. Other states are doing the same. In Georgia, officer Garrett Rolfe is still being prosecuted for shooting Rayshard Brooks, who stole a taser and tried to use it on Rolfe.
Police will get the message: If they use any kind of force to stop a fleeing suspect or restrain one resisting arrest, the state will not protect them. It will side with the criminal. So the rational question is, why even be a police officer? Thousands of officers are asking themselves that, and giving the rational answer. In Minneapolis, nearly one-fourth of the force quit or went on leave in 2021. In New York, police retirements doubled.
Criminals have received the same message. They know that if they run from police, they will not be pursued. If they fight back, they will not be punished. Taxpayer funds will be spent to compensate injured criminals, while what's left will be used to pursue criminal charges against police. If criminals riot, the streets will be abandoned to let them plunder at will. Unsurprisingly, crime has exploded. Murders are up by a third. In cities like D.C., carjackings have quintupled compared to the same time last year.
Without police to protect them, it falls to individual citizens to protect themselves and their neighbors. But America's rulers are determined to stamp that out as well. In neighboring Wisconsin, Kyle Rittenhouse will go on trial this November for defending himself from antifa attackers. The McCloskeys are still being terrorized by the state of Missouri (a red state!) for merely brandishing guns at rioters outside their home. Last year, Omaha bar owner Jake Gardner committed suicide after he lost his business and was criminally charged for defending himself from a looter.
The Globalist American Empire takes delight in all of this. Every ordinary citizen crushed is one step closer to the mob rule and anarcho-tyranny which they desire to foist on the world to their benefit. Ordo ab chao, after all.
America is entering a dark period. Not everything is lost. But the sooner Americans dispense with the illusion that they live in a rational, fair system that respects everyone's rights, the better. Americans must realize the system is truly and wholly evil, ugly, dysfunctional, corrupt, and illegitimate before they are able to build back something far better in its place. You owe the globalists nothing.
